Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is a lesson we learned back in the days when we werte first offering MOOCs, and it has (to my estimation) taken quite a while for the wider community to catch up. As Nick Shackleton-Jones writes, "There really are only two things you can do: you can present a challenge (which will drive learning), or you can provide resources that people can pull on when they are challenged. A resource can be a map, a person, Google, a checklist, a video, a guide…" Exactly. "You might want to call it 'content'; and that's ok so long as you understand that they or may not memorise it (depending on the circumstance) and that they will only access it when they need it."
